Calyxeum Consulting is a full-service Cannabis consultancy, providing industry leading expertise to individuals and groups seeking to enter the medical and recreational Cannabis marketplaces.
CALYXEUM is a female, minority-owned operation located in Detroit, MI with degrees in science, health, & technology, and 10 years of experience in Michigan’s growing Cannabis industry.
Our intention is to expand our growing and processing brand throughout Michigan, adding a female touch to a female plant.
We intend to maintain a competitive advantage in this quickly expanding market by embracing and expanding the relationships that we have built and cultivated, much like our strains, since 2009.
Wholesale brand of organic, and responsibly cultivated superior-quality medical-grade Cannabis and edible products to dispensaries and providers in the state of Michigan.
Build a successful and recognizable minority inclusive commercial cultivation & processing brand in a rapidly growing industry.
At Calyxeum compliance is a part of being a successful Cannabis business. Our desire to comply with local and state industry regulators as well as being amiable with change will allow us to maintain a strong competitive advantage.
Our Edible Cannabis line includes high-quality food products, lozenges, gummies, hard candy, and capsules. Our edibles can produce effective, long-lasting, and safe effects. Most edibles contain a significant amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC-dominant edibles are consumed for recreational and medical purposes and can induce a wide range of effects including relaxation, euphoria, increased appetite, fatigue, and anxiety.
Cultivated with purified water and organic pest management, our premium flower is grown in highly controlled environments based on stage and strain. We harvest, dry, and cure for over 30 days and pick by the stem, handled by hand, and never touch the flower.
Our Calyxcent line includes Cannabis oil concentrates, vape oil, hash, tinctures, dabs, and CBD oil. An oil, concentrate, or extract is any product derived from a Cannabis flower that is processed into a concentrated form, but each type of Cannabis oil is unique.
Our Calyxcent line of Cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of Cannabis without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.

Michigan's Medical Cannabis Market is the second largest in the U.S. with over 300,000 registered patients. All around the country there is a Cannabis supply shortage because of the increase in demand and Cannabis being deemed as essential during a global pandemic. As a wholesale brand Calyxeum will fill in this supply chain gap. Our founders have already established relationships, purchasing orders and partnership opportunities because of their seniority and rapport in the industry.
Calyxeum is 100% committed to making the surrounding community a better place for the citizens of Detroit. We are located in District 7, which is home to beautiful parks such as the impressive and immense Rouge Park. We are partnering with well known active and accomplished community organizations to create programs and employment opportunities making District 7 a better place to live.
It is very important to us that we beautify and positively impact the surrounding area by sponsoring nearby playgrounds, providing mentors for an afterschool program, and volunteering our time to educate groups such as the elderly and veterans. We also have plans to create tutoring programs at nearby schools and rehab vacant homes that surround our facility.
Calyxeum wants to have a lasting impact on our community. Our goal is to establish a non-profit arm that will provide training and education for Detroiters that are interested in the Cannabis industry. Our non profit's mission will also educate the community on the medicinal benefits of the Cannabis plant, the Endocannabinoid System and provide best practices and tips for healthy consumption.
Purchasing residential homes in the same community as our Cultivation facility. We desire to rebuild these blight infested homes and replace them with shipping containers to house our after school program and classes. We have developed a tiny house community design that includes community space and improved residential homes.
We will work with ages 10-17 tutoring in small groups on STEM subjects. We will also sponsor educational workshops and outings to expose the youth in the neighborhood to new opportunities and career paths in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
We are developing and establishing curriculums to teach people of color and Social Equity applicants how to grow, process, operate a cannabis business, complete the licensing processing, accounting, marketing etc. We will provide end to end training on skills needed in the Cannabis industry supply chain.
District 7 is filled with vacant lots of green land, we want to replace this abandoned land with produce filled gardens. The surrounding community will be trained to operate the gardens and have the ability to consume the produce harvested.
